Aerobatics versus Upset Prevention and Recovery Training

Every year Boeing releases a statistical summary of worldwide commercial jet accidents covering the preceding ten years. For several years now, Loss of Control In-flight (LOC-I) has led controlled flight into terrain as the number one cause of both accidents and fatalities[1]. The trend is similar with regard to business aircraft[2]. Clearly, LOC-I is a major flight safety issue. Despite this fact there are currently no defined standards for the delivery of upset recovery training. Now that we understand why this conversation is important, let’s consider some ways we can alleviate the problem. Read the rest of this entry

Deficiencies in Upset Recovery Training Methodologies

There are a number of research needs and deficiencies in training methodologies for upset/stall prevention and recovery training protocols. The verified program delivery outlined below integrates on-line computer-based training, instructor-led training, on-aircraft platforms and level D full flight simulators. Despite the content, sequence, methodologies and specialty topics delivered by a training organization, the success of any training program is directly related to the individual instructor’s ability to present a building block approach appropriate to, and tailored to, the individual pilot-in-training. UPRT is often an individualized training process due to both its inherent complexities and the widely varying experience levels of commercial pilots. Read the rest of this entry
